    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistently great store experiences Went to store twice today. First time wanted to find a floor cleaner. Staff at store entry noted exact location of cleaner. On the way out, noted a propane grill on special sale. Went back this evening and purchased grill. Great price. Staff in store, Jeff, helped load box on cart, took it to check-out and stayed with me through check-out process. Then loaded the box in my car. Very polite and helpful throughout, as was the check-out clerk. Best experience I've ever had in this type of store. June 9, 2016

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My store experience on 23 March 2016 The store Associate/Cashier (Rachel - (RXJ3714) was the only person who answered my question in regards to my purchase. Why was the same type of Outdoor Light on the different boxes looked the same but was package and labeled differently. Rachel explained it to me that the manufacturer packaged their items this way to get more exposure and to make it look like it is from someone else when it is really from the same company and they can put more of the same type of item on the shelf. She explained to me that both lights where indeed the same. She was very professional and knowledgeable in handling my questions for my purchase. March 23, 2016
